(DTI) in the above-referenced docket. DTI VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Apr 04, 2016 Jkt 238001 requests authorization to construct, install, own, operate, and maintain certain facilities located in Clinton, Franklin, and Centre Counties, Pennsylvania; Frederick County, Maryland; and Loudoun and Fauquier Counties, Virginia, to provide 0.155 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas and firm transportation services in the Mid-Atlantic region. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of this project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. DTI’s Leidy South Project involves modifications to six existing DTI compressor stations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and construction of a new metering and regulating station in Virginia. Modifications would occur almost entirely on previously disturbed areas. The FERC staff mailed copies of the EA to federal, state, and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; potentially affected landowners and other interested individuals and groups; newspapers and libraries in the project area; and parties to this proceeding. In addition, the EA is available for public viewing on the FERC’s Web site (www.ferc.gov) using the eLibrary link. A limited number of copies of the EA are available for distribution and public inspection at: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Public Reference Room, 888 First Street NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426, (202) 502–8371.

[Docket No. CP15-492-000]


Dominion Transmission, Inc.; Notice of Availability of the 
Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Leidy South Project

    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) has prepared this environmental assessment (EA) for the 
Leidy South Project proposed by Dominion Transmission, Inc. (DTI) in 
the above-referenced docket. DTI requests authorization to construct, 
install, own, operate, and maintain certain facilities located in 
Clinton, Franklin, and Centre Counties, Pennsylvania; Frederick County, 
Maryland; and Loudoun and Fauquier Counties, Virginia, to provide 0.155 
billion cubic feet per day of natural gas and firm transportation 
services in the Mid-Atlantic region.
    The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the 
construction and operation of this project in accordance with the 
requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. The FERC staff 
concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate 
mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action 
significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.
    DTI's Leidy South Project involves modifications to six existing 
DTI compressor stations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and 
construction of a new metering and regulating station in Virginia. 
Modifications would occur almost entirely on previously disturbed 
areas.
    The FERC staff mailed copies of the EA to federal, state, and local 
government representatives and agencies; elected officials; 
environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; 
potentially affected landowners and other interested individuals and 
groups; newspapers and libraries in the project area; and parties to 
this proceeding. In addition, the EA is available for public viewing on 
the FERC's Web site (www.ferc.gov) using the eLibrary link. A limited 
number of copies of the EA are available for distribution and public 
inspection at: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Public Reference 
Room, 888 First Street NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426, (202) 502-
8371.
